HTML HTML Objects Embedded Elements

Youtube embedded code

I copy the embedded code and my page is blank. Here is my code:

<!doctype html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>My Page3</title> </head>

<body>
<object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?hl=en_US&amp;version=3"> </param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param> <embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?hl=en_US&amp;version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed> </object> </body>

Hey Randy,

Could you wrap your code using the code markdown? You can find it under the Markdown Cheatsheet to the bottom right of the text input. Then we can see it and help you out :)

Just curious, you're using "Object"? to embed the youtube video?

I copied the embedded code from the same video that is on the turorial:

<object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

It's seems very hard to figure it out without showing your code, as of now all I can think of is: you're using "Object" and you just copy the embedded code and your Shockwave did crush...

it is your web browser has like plugin to play videos on the web? specially for some other web browser. just curious...

I rebooted and shockwave is working on other apps, but this will not show anything but a blank page.

<!doctype html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>My Page3</title> </head>

<body>
<object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?hl=en_US&amp;version=3"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/_OBlgSz8sSM?hl=en_US&amp;version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

</body>

Well I check it again about the Embedding elements. try this don't copy what is in the tutorial videos... Visit youtube and goto "share" - "embed" check the "Use old embed code" it will appear the embedding code in object, copy it and try it...

This is might help you to start it again... Good Luck and God Bless :)

Dennis, That is what I did.
